It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Mary Fishback yesterday. Mary started working for the Thomas Balch Library in July of 1996 as a part-time Genealogy Instructor before becoming a full time Library Assistant in November of 2000. Mary also served on the Thomas Balch Advisory back in 1994, and was a part-time recreation instructor at Ida Lee from 1995-1996.

She was truly an example of the best of the town’s history. I always knew I could go to Mary with questions on Leesburg’s history and she would know the answer.

Amber Shaffer Campbell wrote this poem. It made me laugh so I wanted to share it.

The countdown has been building for weeks…..
A new super Walmart in the ‘burg we seek.
Today was opening day for the store.
Groceries and so many treasures galore.
Ribbon cutting with mayor- a big deal.
A parking lot happy selfie with excited feels.
Across the parking lot, picking up the pace,
Greeted outside by a Walmart employee with a serious face.
What? What? What did they say??
It’s not opened Today!!
Something happened to cause the delay,
So start countdown again- May 29 is the day.

Council hosted a roundtable work session to discuss how the town could work with the museum once it reopens. “You can get to a point where a museum is good enough, and I think that Loudoun County wisely, in conjunction with the town, decided that what was good enough is not good enough anymore,” said … read more

  • The long walk to downtown Leesburg from public parking lots could become a quick golf cart ride. Leesburg Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to initiate a staff study about how and where the town might allow golf carts on public streets. The move was inspired when a transportation business, Cartwheels, asked if it could start ferrying visitors downtown from the far-flung Liberty and Pennington lots. According to Mayor Kelly Burk, who saw some of the business’s proposal, the golf carts would be … read more
